The Ministry of Transport in Oman has given to go-ahead for the installation of a new integrated security system for two of the country’s airports. Muscat International Airport and the new Salalah Airport will receive a new state-of-the-art, comprehensive system to include perimeter security intrusion detection, security check points and access control, overseen by a new data management centre.
The contact has been awarded to Thales, French technology firm, who will also be responsible for training and testing as part of the deal agreed this week.
Airports across the world are stepping up their security as the threat of terrorism and smuggling increases. Airport security providers are using the latest technology to develop powerful, high performance systems to strengthen border security.
